    This is quite an obvious choice but have you thought about being a maths teacher? You can do a PGCE after a maths degree and it will allow you to teach maths in high schools, sixth forms etc.

    Its a fabulous degree because it proves youre really brainy and can work everything out from first principles. So it will open doors to graduate schemes and probably jobs were mathematical ability is very much required eg problem solving / code breaking. If you love maths I would go for it. If you fancy something more applied what about engineering or software engineering.

    You can do a lot of things but you have to make sure you have had work experience/internships/committee positions/part-time jobs or you'll be dead in the water. The degree itself is largely irrelevant and merely serves as a tick in a box when it comes to job applications.
